Good from the Wood Boxes and Bags

There are more than 5,000 products derived from trees that we use and enjoy each day - everything from baby food and ice cream, to rayon and paint, to toothpaste, cosmetics, medicine and household cleaners. Each Study Box/Bag is loaded with 13 items and includes a description of the contents. We also have a suggested lesson plan to teach about goods from the woods.

We distribute Goods from the Woods boxes/Bags at events throughout the year. You can also contact us to request one!

A Tree's Dream

Forestry and education partners from across the Southeast collaborated to create "A Tree's Dream." These materials teach youth about ways we are conserving Earth’s natural resources and protecting the environment through a video and accompanying lessons. Follow the dream of Tim the tree as he fulfills his dream of becoming part of a family’s home.
